    It's the shovel. Where the handle meets the blade on that thing is nowhere near meaty enough. Good luck.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    Iíve looked at those but I need something that will eat through roots we have a lot of half inch roots that I want to be able to go right through. This one does great with that itís just weak at the base. The shovel head itself will go through 1 inch roots like butter.

    There are titanium shovels and trowels. Check camping websites for Titanium Cathole Trowels, pretty cheap actually.

    Shovels, only I have seen are custom made. However you can buy titanium shovel heads and spade heads and then have you a custom handle put on it. You may get lucky if you check out expedition sites and forums for vehicle self recovery or mountaineering.

    Cathole trowels, well they are really just made for digging catholes, so the handle is normally pure tang. You would have to buy some rubber tool dip, and then dip that tang until you have built up something that works for you.

    I heard through the grapevine that Lesche himself got a divorce and the product has never been the same. I guess when he had to give up HALF he had a cut some corners.

    You could find your self a piece of old sucker rod or something like it, run it through you handle and then build up your weld. But it is just going to add weight.

    May be time to dig through some treasure, sell some stuff and buy you something that you will not have to replace again.

    The Truth
    If there's enough meat left on the blade,get a piece of cast steel pipe 4 or so inches long.put the pipe on the shaft,weld the handle where it belongs.clean the weld up,slide the piece of pipe down overe the welded part and weld the pipe ends to the handle shaft.
